We came in for my wife’s birthday on a Saturday night. I made a reservation and asked what the dessert options were that evening and mentioned the occasion. When we arrived we were seated promptly and were pleased that the restaurant had placed a nice...card on our table wishing my wife a happy birthday. The menu has a good selection of options. My wife had a short rib dish and I had a stew served in a puffed pastry. Both were delicious. For dessert my wife got a chocolate cheesecake with an Oreo crust and I had a Baileys crème brûlée. Those were also both delicious. We didn’t have wine but there is a wide selection that should wet most people’s palates. The prices are somewhat high but it is fine dining in Lakeside and it is apparent that the chef is very talented and cares about what goes out of his kitchen. We live in the area and will make this a go-to spot for special occasions. I will add that all service was exceptional and presented with a smile.More

Exceptional Small Town Gem. I always think it’s going to be tough to find a gem in a small town, but then it happens and I’m beyond thrilled. This place might be a tad pricey to some, but I have to tell you it’s worth...every penny. When a place has quality food, great atmosphere, impeccable service and great vibes you get what you pay for. Every dish we had was a unique surprise. Being from LA and owning a premier restaurant myself i don’t say any of this lightly. Please make sure you try this gem. All the appetizers and entrees we had were delish and my expresso Martini was perfect. The icing on the cake, was every dime they make off your bread order goes to a different non profit monthly. Make sure you order their home made warm bread. The gazpacho soup was one of the best I’ve had in a long time. The filet appetizer was tender and flavorful, The Curry dish had a nice kick, the crispy chicken appetizer was juicy and amd just the right amount of crispy. My Wedge salad mane chopped just like I asked and tonight’s pasta special was fantastic. All 4 of us were happy and very full. We will be back on Saturday night for our late dinner hereMore

Food was excellent - very fresh and innovative. Wine list was great. Service was terrific. The dining room was very quiet (a plus!) but it was a really nasty night outside so might be louder on a busy evening. It is a bit pricey so...best to save this one for special occasions!More

Great food from great, friendly folks. In my view, there are only 2 gourmet restaurants on Flathead Lake (Show Thyme in Big Fork and this one). The food and presentation are truly excellent. We both had the crispy duck. I also had the bread pudding...dessert. Dinning outside on a warm evening is lovely, but the inside ambiance is very nice too.More

Although we found Beargrass Bistro on Trip Advisor as highly recommended, we were stunned at the superb meals and the great service in a pleasant atmosphere. This was probably the top dining experience we have had in Montana! My halibut tasted as if it had...been just pulled from the water and cooked to perfection with jasmine rice and greens, while my husband’s crispy duck received similar approval. We found some excellent wine selections, a shared Sicilian salad that the restaurant split for us, and a scrumptious ending with Pavlova with lemon curd, berries and cream. We only wish wee could return!More

A wonderful “destination” restaurant because of the food, service and ambience. Went there for our anniversary and were warmly welcomed. Menu had lots of choices (about 10 entrees and 5 specials). You can spend $79 fir a Wagyu NY steak or $23 fir an all...vegan plate. We went with the short rib marinated beef and the Wagyu meatloaf. Both very good. Wine list was large and reasonable. Dessert was very good. We’ll make this our favorite restaurant in Montana.More

Our hosts at Coyote Bluff Estate recommended this restaurant and made reservations. I had the halibut which was perfect and my husband had the sirloin steak special. Both entrees were delicious and there was plenty of extra steak to take with us. Would definitely dine...here again.More

This restaurant is a little tricky to find — the entrance is tucked in the back side of a nicer building. We had excellent outdoor seating. Their bread was served with style. The entrees have a very nice selection and our meal was the best...we had in Montana. Service was excellent. I think this is a hidden gem.More

Top flight from the decor, food, wine, and staff. We both had the short ribs - excellent! If you are staying in North Flathead Lake area, this is a must go to restaurant! If I lived here, this would be my local hangout!

I've been here about four times now and it's a treat every time. The decor is warm, the food artfully prepared and the service friendly and on point. Lapriel is a very nice server who knows the menu well and always makes it a lovely...evening. There are usually a few specials every night and the menu is just the right size. Also, the wine list is excellent and I wasn't expecting to find such a well curated wine list in the sticks of Montana but it is very well done with some good and rare finds on it too. If, like me, you didn't think you could ever find Grand Cru Chablis in the sticks of Montana--you would be 100% wrong. Love this place.More
